We run sendmail on our systems in the field to hold and send email (but never 
receive it from the outside world) and I would like to be able to suppress 
bounce generation.

The local user sending the email on the system has it's email redirected 
outside (to us back at base) so we're not the bounce messages provide pretty 
much zero useful information and just slow the link down when it does come 

Does anyone know how? I've seen DOUBLE_BOUNCE_ADDRESS which would help, but it 
would be nice to suppress them all if possible.
